C2BS is a state-of-the-art solution for credit bureaus. Fully functioning, out-of-the-box, yet deeply customisable according to the needs of each client and fully scalable, it represents a complete solution for any credit bureau requirements. Whether your needs are a “pocket bureau” for a single institution, a “vertical bureau” for a specific sector, or a full-service, cross-sectoral credit bureau solution, C2BS is the solution for you. The solution’s flexibility allows customisations and price sensitivity to work for small countries in developing economies, as well as for the largest countries in advanced economies.
C2BS includes specific modules that make it uniquely qualified as a solution for public bodies wishing to create a credit registry, by focusing on reporting, compliance, and oversight features.
C2BS is sold both as-a-solution installed in-house at the client’s selected datacentre, or as-a-service in a cloud environment hosted at CRIF’s own high security and high availability datacentre.
“GLocal” Credit Bureau Score
A credit bureau score is a statistical indicator of the likelihood that a customer will default on a payment over the next year, given that customer’s historical behaviour as evidenced by credit bureau data. Credit bureau scores are an invaluable tool for improving the analytical powers of credit risk managers, and implementing automated decision policies.
Scores can be either “expert” or “customised”.
The GLocal Credit Bureau Score is an expert score that comes integrated in the C2BS. It is useful as a “start-up” score in situations where no reliable historical data are available. The model was developed using data from different countries in which CRIF has credit bureau clients. In the period after implementation of a new credit bureau solution (3 to 18 months) as data are processed and stored by the bureau, it is possible to perform a validation which consists of testing the “GLocal” score forecasting capability and, if necessary, re-calculating it in order to fine tune the scorecard weights.
Customised Credit Bureau Score
CRIF has extensive experience in creating customized scores as part of our bureaus. The Perform customised score allows a full rank-ordering of any client’s portfolio according to the probability of default of its customers. With customized scorecards by product and subject type, the Perform score is used by CRIF clients to segment their customers, leading to faster and more accurate decisions at all stages of the loan cycle.
